Problem Reported: Torque Converter Clutch Can Stick After Extended Freeway Driving
September 15, 2010, 10:05 PM
<p>The torque converter clutch can stick "on" after extended freeway driving causing the engine to stall when coming to a stop. Our technicians tell us when this occurs, the engine usually will restart and stall when put into gear. After allowing about twenty minutes for the engine and transmission to cool down, the engine will start and the transmission will operate normally. Replacing the torque converter clutch solenoid, transmission filter, and fluid will generally correct this issue.</p>

An excellent car for those who like to explore while being comfortable. Also great as a commuter vehicle because of the fact that one has plenty of legroom and trunk space is not limited.

Great car for commuting because it keeps on going no matter what happens. My particular car went through the wringer, but if it were in better condition it'd be a nice car.

An excellent vehicle with some previous owner issues - such as no oil changes, lights not replaced or repaired, fuel inlet restrictor damaged/missing, missing sound system but intact radio/cassette player, and otherwise shoddy repairs to the whole of the vehicle. But, as with any gem in the rough, this vehicle has a great engine and transmission with low (for the year) miles.
